Miles and Points On Sale — January 12 2024

Four frequent travel loyalty programs are offering deals in this edition.

Sometimes you need an infusion of miles or points to your membership account for whatever reason — perhaps to have enough to redeem for a limited time award as one example — and the best time to purchase or gift miles or points is when they are on sale, as with this miles and points on sale for Friday, January 12 2024.

Miles and Points On Sale — January 12 2024

A sale may be a discount on the price required to purchase miles or points — or perhaps the frequent travel loyalty program from whom you are buying the miles or points will match your purchase up to 150 percent, which is another way of reducing the cost of miles or points.

Offers to purchase miles and points are not usually highlighted in their own articles here at The Gate With Brian Cohen. Rather, they are compiled in this article — typically whenever a new sale is announced or an old sale expires — so that you can shop for miles and points from different frequent travel loyalty programs conveniently in one spot and compare the sales to what you want or need.

Note that you may get a different offer from some of the frequent travel loyalty programs than what are posted in this article — especially when the offer is touted as a “mystery bonus” or some other vague term.

The frequent travel loyalty programs which are featured in this latest edition of miles and points on sale are:

  • Choice Privileges
  • American Airlines AAdvantage
  • Spirit Airlines Free Spirit
  • United Airlines MileagePlus

Choice Privileges: Up to 30 Percent Discount

Final Boarding Call

Remember that each frequent travel loyalty program has partners through which you can redeem miles or points; so you are not confined just to the product offered by an airline or lodging company.

Also be sure to read the terms and conditions of each offer. Typically, all sales are final: once you have purchased your miles or points through these sales, you cannot return your points; and your money cannot be refunded.

I have purchased miles and points on rare occasions — and if you need to do so from the aforementioned frequent travel loyalty programs, now is the right time.
